Here are some recent useful pieces on ed tech-related issues:

From Apple II to Touchcast, the evolution of computers in the classroom is from The Washington Post. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The History Of Technology.

Via Tablet or Smartphone, Learning With MOOCs is from The New York Times. I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles On MOOC’s — Help Me Find More.

Three issues with the case for banning laptops is a thoughtful commentary from the Chronicle of Higher Education on a recent New Yorker piece advocating banning laptops in the college classroom (a link to the original piece is in the Chronicle article).

Don’t Personalize Learning is definitely a thought-provoking piece.

The Missing Guide for Google Hangout Video Calls is very helpful. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning What Google+ Is All About.
